Sunday Sermon: When is a Coup Not a Coup?
It appears the Niger story is the same old song when it comes to former colonial nations trying to free themselves from the clutches of the nation that had declared itself Master and taken what it desired from the colonized nation’s people. France continued to loot Niger in many different ways, and the current elected government allowed that to continue. Those who performed the coup immediately ceased feeding France on the easiest of levels—the financial chains will take longer to remove. Reports from Niger show commonfolk backing the coup because of their actions to break their bondage. That interpretation makes the “junta” a Liberation Army. And given the context of longstanding French actions, it appears that all of its former colonies are demanding a severance—a liberation—from the Neocolonial chains France applied and continues to exploit.
Compradors not just in Africa acting in the interest of their Colonial Masters need to quickly rethink their position. For a Multipolar World isn’t the only thing forming, a major component of the new Multipolar World will be the absence of Colonialism within the RoW Bloc as it will clearly continue within the Outlaw US Empire Bloc as the former will subscribe to the Global Security Initiative which doesn’t allow hegemony of any sort. As we move closer to 2030, we’ll very likely see more coups of the sort that occurred in Niger that aren’t really coups but revolts aiming to free people.
